Hailed by Q Magazine as a ‘rare talent’, Los Angeles based AM arrives on these shore to support US band Train during their forthcoming UK tour. In addition to this AM headlines his own show at London’s Water Rats on the 26th October. Already he can boast support slots for French Electronica giants AIR, Charlotte Gainsbourg and the acclaimed Brazilian songwriter Caetano Veloso. His debut album Future Sons and Daughters was produced by Charles Newman (Magnetic Fields) in Elliott Smith‘s former apartment, and fuses a wide range of roots sounds; from 60s Bay area psychedelia to Brazilian tropicalia. To give you an idea of his musical influences he’s helpfully put together a mixtape, available from SoundCloud: www.bit.ly/AMmixtape     

With the album set for release on vinyl on October 25th, AM is offering gig-goers the chance to pick up a free autographed copy of the album on limited edition 180gram vinyl. To qualify, you need to buy 4 tickets for the show; then you can collect the record from AM at the show.

 Future Sons and Daughters is out now on Naim Edge.

 

 

Nigel of Bermondsey – Lonely Heart Attack

Release date: 19th July 2010 (Pure Mint)

Lonely Heart Attack is the first single to be taken from the new Nigel of Bermondsey album ‘London Dreamtime’. According to Nigel, the song was written when he was in an extremely bad mood… ‘it’s about breaking up and not making up and how you fantasise that you will be missed although you probably won’t be…’

The haunting B-side ‘You Are my Avatar’ (which you can hear on our SoundCloud page) evokes memories of the late, great Elliott Smith. This single will be available for digital download (from iTunes) from 12th July.

Nigel (Woolf-Hoyle) started his musical career as the bass player in Indie/Glam group Gay Dad in the late 20th century. After the band’s demise, Nigel dedicated himself to his own songwriting career; Nigel of Bermondsey was born, and his debut, self-titled album was released in 2008 to great acclaim. London Dreamtime, his second album, recorded in a small room just off the Walworth Road over a three month period in 2009.
